Music for Teacup
video / experimental video
This series of video works investigating the destructive moment of a breaking piece of family tableware to highlight family dynamics, upbringing, inheritance, etiquette, and issues of class. “Music for Teacups” is a guttural release from the rigidity of etiquette practices while also indulging in the beauty of their order. It rhythmically dissects the poetic moment of a falling and breaking teacup as it sounds during its last second as a complete object. The work was originally conceived as a way to photographically discover the moment a teacup splits apart.
